Hamilton Academical boss Billy Reid says coveted midfielder James McCarthy will be staying at the club until the end of the season at least.
The 18-year-old has attracted the attention of a number of top clubs across Europe after putting in some stunning performances with the SPL outfit.
Barcelona are reported to be showing a major interest in the player, says his agent, but Reid insists the player is going nowhere.
The Accies boss, whose side take on Kilmarnock in the SPL on Saturday, said: "McCarthy has been outstanding this season. He has been absolutely sensational in the SPL and that speculation will never go away.
"The one thing I guarantee is that he won't be leaving in January - he will be here until the end of the season at least.
"We will sit down with James and see where we are, but it's no surprise there are big-name clubs looking at him."
